Is it customise or customize?

Discussion in 'Site Problems & Feedback' started by NotBold_Fortune, Nov 19, 2002.

  1. Is it just me, or is the customization in System Customisation misspelled in the title of this forum?

    There I go nitpicking. :)

    Its American spelling rather than UKEnglish.. or visa versa!

    EP spelled it the UK way. I personally spell it customize. ;)
     
  4. Ah. Well, then to be politically correct, shouldn't we have customization in all languages, and also braille for the handicapped?

    the main differences in spelling are:

    1- -our like honour ( US: honor)
    2- -re like centre (US: center)
    3- ogue ( dialogue) (US: dialog)
    4- -ize ( realise) (US: realize)
    5--ence ( defence) ( US: defense)
    6- ae (anamia) (US: anemia)

    This has been discussed thrice before. I think it should end here.

    Learn the Queens english you blue bellies. And while you're at go metric. :p
     
  13. Let me think, in order for me to not have annoyed anyone with repeating a question that has be discussed enough in the past, I should have first done a search on the site for the proper spelling of customization.

    Well, just in case we have some newer folks or some more interested folks than we did last time - let's give them a chance to read what was said before!:D

    Electronic Punk,

    There's a big chance that every questions that you see here were asked before....so the forum should be close and just keep the search option open...that will help

    Deceiving, really
